Kirk Concert Series Presents Moore Town Granny Nanny Cultural Group

Moore Town Granny Nanny Cultural GroupSeptember 1, 2016

Based in Jamaica’s first and only UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Blue & John Crow Mountains National Park, the Granny Nanny Cultural Group, which has a core of 12 members, is a traditional performing arts ensemble consisting of master musicians, drummers, storytellers, craftspeople, herbal healers and spiritualists. In 2003, UNESCO declared the music of the Moore Town Maroons as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.”

The ensemble will be at Agnes Scott as part of a one-month tour (August 11– September 11) of Georgia, which is co-sponsored by Georgia State University’s Center for Collaborative & International Arts (CENCIA). The ensemble visits Agnes Scott on Thursday, September 1, for a 1 p.m. master class/workshop and a 7:30 p.m. concert. For more information about the ensemble, visit the website.   

This event is free and open to the public. Tickets are free but should be reserved here. Tickets are required for entry of all attendees to the 7:30 p.m. performance, including the Agnes Scott community (students, faculty, and staff).  

Both events are being held at Agnes Scott's Presser Hall. Parking is available in the parking deck across the street from Presser Hall. Questions? Email or call 404.471.6049.
